In late August of 1989, on a weekend, from the 18th to the 20th, Malcolm Forbes gave himself a 70th birthday party in Tangier, Morocco where he owned a palace, the Palais Mendoub. 800 guests were flown in on a chartered Boeing 747, a DC-8 and a Concorde. Friends and associates from the world’s rich and famous, from the US and Europe, as well as half dozen US governors, scores of CEOs of mulinational corporations and the highest of the mucky mucks like Gianni Agnelli, Henry Kissinger, Barbara Walters, Robert Maxwell, and the birthday boy’s “date” for the event: Elizabeth Taylor.
